Bob Cherry of Cybergrass wrote, "Award winning hall of famer and bluegrass music legend Doyle Lawson & Quicksliver has released another outstanding album, Roads Well Traveled. What I love about this album is the fullness of the music. The music doesn't come across as lacking anything. This album not only has that full Doyle Lawson sound, it also has a great collection of songs. This is why Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver have such a huge following."
Roads Well Traveled fittingly kicks off with "Dixie Road" and follows with stories of life, love and more. Whether it is the loss of a loved one after 60 years, remembering an old friend, the gift of life, or one's heritage, this album has it all bundled together with that rich Lawson sound.
There is also original material on the album that rounds it out well. “By The Waters of the Clinch” and “It’s Hard to Be Forgotten” highlight the band's superb songwriting ability. The band's innovations in the realm of bluegrass and gospel music are broad and wide and cover the genre with a fine brush. Roads Well Traveled is obviously a rainbow that evolved from this outstanding artist.
The band has been around for ages and has gone through many iterations and Roads Well Traveled shows how this is obviously one of the best combinations Doyle has put together. This compilation of 11 outstanding tracks proves how Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver just keep getting better and better. Make no mistake, Doyle Lawson and his band are well tuned and exhibit pure precision in their execution.
Congratulations to Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver for a job well done and for this recognition from That Nashville Sound.
